During the year of 1916, Samantha was fighting in World War I. At this time she did not know Süssman, and was fighting on the opposite side. During one of the many battles, she fought Süssman with a knife at first, taking out his right eye. Then, she plunged her knife into his stomach. But that wasn't where she meant to aim. Samantha avoided killing during wars, as she despised them. She normally wouldn't fight in wars but this was a world war, so she had to.
